"For the Love of Money", 38"x38", 2002, $4,500

This fun “puzzle interchange quilted portrait” with hair standing on end is another quilt made up of 16 squares with faces. It is embellished with acrylic paint, fabric paint, jewels and polymer clay. I began it as a demonstration piece while teaching a workshop at UC Santa Cruz. I felt nervous about sharing in front of a group of students, but my philosophy is “Feel the fear and do it anyway!”. This quilt is an expression (hair standing on end) of my trepidation. The “Love of Money” is also a good reason for going forward in whatever challenge is in front of me. Machine appliqué, fabric, thread, acrylic paint, fabric paint, polymer clay.
